Pitter-patter, splutter-splatter, drizzle turns to roar... DOWNPOUR! But where do all those raindrops go? Dirty stormwater runoff can cause big problems, polluting rivers, ponds and waterways. So this classroom plans and builds a rain garden, collecting excess water in barrels, creating paths for water-flow with stones and bricks and planting flowers and grasses that help the water percolate and invite wildlife to feed and pollinate. With Michelle Schaub's lively, engaging storytelling and Blanca Gomez's bright, beguiling illustrations, A Place for Rain provides an upbeat and actionable approach to an important environmental issue, and empowers readers with the tools to reduce pollution, diminish flooding and create a habitat for wildlife. Informational back-matter includes instructions and resources for readers to build their own rain garden.

The shipping was just superior

The shipping was just superior; not even one of the books was in contact with the shipping box -anywhere-, not even a corner or the bottom, so all the books arrived in perfect condition. The international shipping took around 2 weeks, so pretty great too.

Found a hard to get book…

Finding a hard to get book on Booksplease and with it not being an over inflated price was great. Ordering was really easy with updates on despatch. The book was packaged well and in great condition. I will certainly use them again.
